Bastiaan van Zadelhoff

The art of taming a relunctant brick

You know those two from many a Pop clip, so you won't be too surprised by their abilities when it comes to tackle the not so hospitable grounds of their very own Haarlem… But, they do go another step, here, when skating grounds most would not even bother put a wheel on!

Le Pop sportif

You probably remember Bastiaan van Zadelhoff's latest lo-fi-inclined montage from just a few days back? Well, on more Amsterdam-related news, here he is again as a guest in Sami El Hassani's newest video production for the Netherlands-based garment company Pop Trading Company, per usual. But this time, the two main heads are fellow LIVE regulars Noah Bunink and Logan da Silva Ortiz, whose cobblestone-mounted stunts just won't stop scrolling past Sami's lens, attached to a camera set to 4:3 format settings, to then be given the black and white treatment for a general impression that's always reminiscing of the original VHS tapes of "EASTERN EXPOSURE" (Dan Wolfe's revolutionary video, from which a lot of footage was later compiled in "CLOSURE"). Of course, here, the style calendar is on the year twenty twenty page, implying many inventive tricks on awkward spots - all of which we'll now leave up to you to appreciate!

Bats news!

A postcard coming from Haarlem (Netherlands) and its surroundings (from the look of those cobblestones) in what once was called VHS and is now low-def, thanks to our favorite Bastian! Aahh, one day, those streets will be ours again…

Pop fashion week

They were in town to import their very own BYOBSS from Amsterdam to Paris, but took the time for way more, from catwalks to parties, all spiced up by that street thing, despite the heat! Proof, here with many new faces to top it…

Ratio

The Pop gang is back in full, this time with a slightly different casting than usual, and also a retro-futuristic format of sorts, I.E.. the HD 4:3. Best of both worlds, one can say, as the cities of Hague and Rotterdam offer the perfect paving stones decor also…

Parking Lot Stardust

You may remember Netherlands-based filmer Ziggy Schaap's previous edit: "The End" that graced the almighty Interwebs last spring. Well, the end it wasn't, as it turned out that even wintertime wasn't enough to deter the man and his crew of friends from doing their thing: this new video, "No Service" was filmed just then, over the span of two months and with a modus operandi of being underground parking lot-themed. A project for which they really did some research regarding which ones not just in the Netherlands but also Belgium had the best utilizations possible to offer, as an attempt to cover as much slippery-slick (under-)ground as possible! The final output is a much more joyful watch than one might expect from the basic concept: the VX-1000 is excellent (explicitly influenced by the likes of Yoan Taillandier), the terrain gets worked in smart ways and in the end, "No Parking" is one more great testament to how the daily weather doesn't have to dictate how much motivation one should show!

Late Christmas

As if to celebrate the end of the year, Marc Bolhuis filmer based in Rotterdam offers us Boombap the full length of the kids from the local scene. Filmed over 5 years, you have probably already seen some parts like the of Bombaklats’ one, or Yannick Witvoet’s. And frankly it's a nice late Christmas present, a very complete video, from street tech to creative powerslides. In short it announces only good things for the Dutch scene in 2019!

A sparking 2018!

A yearful of Pop, what does it adds up to, in the end? Well, to a good chunk of disparate and not always obvious spots from all around Europe, all tackled in good spirits… Proof, here, obviously!

No I in Pop!

Some new new, or at least some new faces at Pop! But, fear not, they fit perfectly in the crew, while still adding their own little thing! On the other, they also stick on the strict Dutch rule of having a name no one will ever remember…

Brick squad

And the Pop boys are back, this time applying at home, one built mostly from bricks of various sizes and colors, most times not very well jointed… To say the list. Yes, we are talking about Antwerp, a city not necessarily known for its perfect spots. Which does not seem to bother anyone, here, and certainly not locals Yeelen Moens and Alex Raeymaekers, that display here their well-known ATV skills!

Brit Pop!

Or when the Pop heads do London… They do it right, as you would expect! Oh, and you'll witness one of the beautifullest mob flip you'll ever see… Trust us.

Baatsy!

Ahh, Bastiaan van Zadelhoff… He ticks all the right boxes! At least for us. Good nimble style, check, great lines, check, and ones made of unexpected tricks, check. Yup, that Pop Short should put a smile on our collective faces, despite being entirely filmed on the Dutch-est possible terrains you could encounter!
